The day is here! We’re always trying to find ways in which our app can be more user-friendly and serve music fans better. As of today, the Discogs iOS and Android apps integrate Apple Music. Together with the streaming giant, we hope to provide our users with a service that will make your experience in the Discogs app more complete. You might be left wondering, ‘What does that mean?’ Here’s what this new upgrade looks like:
Apple Music Play on every Master Release page
Up until now, the Discogs Community has been able to pair Youtube videos with Master Releases on Discogs. This has been great to offer visitors the opportunity to listen to music directly on our platform. To make things better, thanks to the Apple Music integration you’ll be able to listen to those releases directly on Discogs without waiting for a playlist to be added manually. We’ll make sure that the music linked to the releases is correct. Always.
Within the Discogs app, you’ll have two possibilities. If you are not subscribed to Apple Music, you’ll be able to listen to samples of the songs. If you’d prefer to fully explore the possibilities that this integration offers, you can subscribe to Apple Music and listen to entire tracks from the streaming platform while in the Discogs App. It’s as good as it sounds!
Please don’t stop the music!
One of the most annoying things about listening to music on your cellphone is when the music stops, suddenly and unexpectedly, when you continue browsing. This happens way too often and it’s extremely disruptive. If you agree with us on this one, know that we have your back. With this new integration, you’ll be able to browse through the app while still listening to the music you’re playing. This opens a whole new level of navigating Discogs, finding hidden gems, and answering messages in the app while enjoying the music you love. We’ll let you find out the best ways to make use of this new functionality. This feature is available for users with an Apple Music account, so that’s one more good reason to sign up today.
